Catherine Zeta-Jones will play Morticia in Wednesday on Netflix.
CZJ will appear as the Addams family matriarch in the series, joining fellow cast members Jenna Ortega as Wednesday and Luis Guzmán as Gomez.
Wednesday is an 8-episode series that will follow Wednesday Addams’ years as a student at Nevermore Academy.
Zeta-Jones is the latest actress to play Morticia. Carolyn Jones played the character first in the 60s Addams Family TV series and Oscar-winner Anjelica Huston famously played her in the two Addams Family films in the 90s.
Charlize Theron voiced Morticia in the 2019 Addams Family animated film.
Big shoes to fill. Anjelica Huston played Morticia to the hilt. This scene from Addams Family Values, is short but it packs a punch –line.
